Prof. Herrmann-Pillath and GBA Experts Shared Insights on NbS and Designing BiodiverCity


Date: Mar 19, 2024

Nature-based solutions (NbS) refers to actions that effectively address social, economic and environmental challenges through the protection, sustainable management and restoration of natural and modified ecosystems. Since the official introduction of NbS by the World Bank in 2008, it has been increasingly applied on climate action, disaster prevention, food security, water security, and ecosystem degradation.

On March 19, 2024, Prof. Dr. Carsten Herrmann-Pillath from University Erfurt was invited to share his latest research findings on NbS and designing biodivercity at CDI’s international symposium. The event was joint by role players from the public and private sectors in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Discussion dived into how to build a co-evolutionary relationship between natural ecology and technological city to achieve more inclusive and resilient urban development.
